1 General Certificate of Education (A-level) January 2013 Business Studies BUSS1 (Specification 2130) Unit 1: Planning and Financing a Business Mark Scheme

2 Mark schemes are prepared by the Principal Examiner and considered, together with the relevant questions, by a panel of subject teachers. This mark scheme includes any amendments made at the standardisation events which all examiners participate in and is the scheme which was used by them in this examination. The standardisation process ensures that the mark scheme covers the students responses to questions and that every examiner understands and applies it in the same crect way. As preparation f standardisation each examiner analyses a number of students scripts: alternative answers not already covered by the mark scheme are discussed and legislated f. If, after the standardisation process, examiners encounter unusual answers which have not been raised they are required to refer these to the Principal Examiner. It must be stressed that a mark scheme is a wking document, in many cases further developed and expanded on the basis of students reactions to a particular paper. Assumptions about future mark schemes on the basis of one year s document should be avoided; whilst the guiding principles of assessment remain constant, details will change, depending on the content of a particular examination paper.

3 Assessment Objectives The Assessment Objectives represent those qualities which can be demonstrated in candidates wk and which can be measured f the purposes of assessment. AO1 Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the specified content AO2 Apply knowledge and understanding to problems and issues arising from both familiar and unfamiliar situations AO3 Analyse problems, issues and situations AO4 Evaluate, distinguish between and assess appropriateness of fact and opinion, and judge infmation from a variety of sources Quality of Written Communication Candidates give accurate definitions of relevant terms. Candidates can also gain credit f identifying a point relevant to the question. Candidates should apply their knowledge to the business context in which the question is set, through recognition of some specific business aspect, the management of the business the problems issues faced by the business. Candidates will not be rewarded f simply dropping the company name product categy into their answer. Candidates use relevant business they and select infmation from a range of sources, using appropriate methods, to analyse business problems and situations. F example, candidates may be asked to build up an argument that shows understanding of cause and effect. Candidates evaluate evidence to reach reasoned judgements. This can be shown within an answer, through the weighting of an argument it can also be shown within a conclusion, perhaps by weighing up the strength of the candidate s own arguments f and against a proposition. Candidates will not gain credit by the simple use of drilled phrases such as On the other hand Business operates in an ever-changing environment. The quality of written communication is assessed in all assessment units where candidates are required to produce extended written material. Candidates will be assessed accding to their ability to: ensure that text is legible, and that spelling, grammar and punctuation are accurate, so that meaning is clear. select and use a fm and style of writing appropriate to purpose and complex subject matter ganise infmation clearly and coherently, using specialist vocabulary when appropriate The assessment of the quality of written communication is included in Assessment Objective 4. 3

4 ADDITIONAL GUIDANCE FOR MARKING SCHEME This marking scheme requires decisions to be made on whether candidates responses represent reasonable good application and reasonable good analysis. If a response demonstrates good analysis and application, award Level 5 full marks. Alternatively, if a response does not contain any relevant knowledge then a mark of zero would be appropriate. In making a decision about whether a particular response is good reasonable, use the following guidelines. APPLICATION Good application can be demonstrated in three ways. By combining data. F example, in responding to Question 2(b), a candidate might achieve good marks f application by using the data in Figure 1 to argue in suppt of Location A rather than Location B, as the 33% increase in customer numbers combined with the 50p increase in spending per customer means higher daily sales revenue. F Location A the daily sales revenue is predicted to reach 1,200 (200 x 6) per day whereas at Location B it should only reach 825 (150 x 5.50) per day, a difference of 375 per day ( 45% higher). Similarly, calculations may contrast the 33% higher customer numbers at Location A with the 33% higher rent paid. By manipulating data. F example, when answering Question 2(c), candidates might use the data in Figure 2 to confirm that Bill and Olivia s closing cash balance in June 2014 is 79,000, an increase of on the opening balance of These figures suppt the view that Bill and Olivia s risk is limited as they may be able to repay two-thirds of their initial capital within 18 months of start-up. By being consistently in context. An answer may not demonstrate either of the above characteristics, but it may be in context throughout with each argument related to the scenario. F example, in 1(e) good application can be achieved by combining arguments that relate to the lack of weekend cover and the fact that staffing levels are the same regardless of the level of sales in each quarter. If a candidate makes a single simple reference to the context when developing an argument, this is reasonable application. An example of this in answering Question 2(a) could be that Bill needed to show the bank manager the cash flow fecast in der to suppt his request f a bank overdraft. F application to be creditwthy, it must be used as part of a relevant argument. Some students simply copy out part of the case. This should not receive credit. ANALYSIS Good analysis is shown when a candidate develops a chain of argument with a clear focus on the question. F example, when responding to Question 2(a), a line of argument could show how the cash flow fecast benefited Bill and Olivia because the first draft revealed potential problems which could be overcome if they got credit from the furniture supplier and franchis. The redraft showed an improved cash flow fecast that helped Bill to persuade the bank manager to offer a bank overdraft. Reasonable analysis will be shown through less developed chains of argument those with a less clear focus on the question. F example, in Question 2(b) the potential f higher sales in Location A because of its closer proximity to the city centre is relevant but unlikely to lead to good analysis unless it combines this argument with other infmation, as the data in Figure 1 shows that Location A should generate higher sales volume. Simple points ideas expressed without any development would be rewarded with knowledge marks. EVALUATION The driving fce behind the award of evaluation marks is the quality of evaluation included in the answer and not the Quality of Written Communication. The key is the extent of the suppt f a judgement. Evaluative comments may be offered throughout a response and may suppt a judgement fully. The decision on the Quality of Written Communication should be used to adjust a mark within the level selected on the basis of the candidate s evaluation. F example, a candidate may have been awarded the lower mark in E3 f evaluation but the response may be particularly well structured with highly effective use of technical terms. In this case, the mark may be adjusted upward to the maximum f E3. A well written answer without any evaluation can receive one mark f quality of language. 4

5 1 Total f this question: 20 marks 1 (a) What is meant by the term bank overdraft (line 41)? (2 marks) Definition: Where a bank allows an individual ganisation to overspend on their current account (1 mark) Second mark up to an agreed limit (1 mark) provide sht term / tempary finance (1mark) First mark must be obtained befe the second mark can be awarded 1 (b) Calculate (to one decimal place) Bill and Olivia s expected market share of the coffee shop market in Camfd in (3 marks) Answer = 3.9% (3 marks) Break-down of calculation: % market share = Sales of coffee and a cake Total sales in market x 100 (1 mark f fmula, if no valid calculation) (1 mark) 8.4 million (1 mark) x 100 = 3.9% (1 mark) ** ** Apply OFR only if genuine attempt made to calculate sales f Coffee and a Cake. Award up to 2 marks if 2014 market size ( 9 million) used million (1 mark) x 100 = 3.6% (1 mark) If Figure 1 used award a maximum of 2 marks if based on location A Answer = 5.2% 4.5% (2 marks) 5

6 1 (c) Calculate (to one decimal place) the expected percentage rate of market growth of the coffee shop market in Camfd from 2013 to (3 marks) Answer = 7.1 % (3 marks) Break-down of calculation: % change in market growth = Change in market size Original market size x 100 (1 mark f fmula, if no valid calculation) ( ) = 0.6 (1 mark) 8.4 (1 mark) x 100 = 7.1 % (1 mark) 1 (d) Explain two motives f Olivia wanting to become an entrepreneur. (6 marks) Level Descript Marks L3 Good application 6 5 L2 Good knowledge Reasonable application 4 3 L1 Knowledge 2 1 Definition: Entrepreneur: An individual who has an idea (1 mark) and sets up a business to exploit it (1 mark). OR Someone who takes a risk of financial loss (1 mark) and makes decisions / manages the business (1 mark). Possible motives might include the following: she was prepared to take a risk as she put all of her savings into the setting up of the business she enjoyed mixing with people; something her call centre job did not provide she disliked the routine of her current job she had wked f a Coffee and a Cake franchise f 3 years whilst at university, and found the experience satisfying. Good application clearly relates the motives of becoming an entrepreneur to Olivia s own situation. Good application must show why she wanted to become an entrepreneur rather than why she did not want to wk in a call centre. 6

7 1 (e) Explain two disadvantages that might arise from the way Olivia plans to use full-time staff f the first 18 months. (6 marks) Level Descript Marks L3 Good application 6 5 L2 Good knowledge Reasonable application 4 3 L1 Knowledge 2 1 Definition: A full-time employee is a wker who wks a complete wking week (1 mark). Disadvantages include: there is a lack of flexibility in staffing, particularly as Olivia s full-time staff wk only on Mondays to Fridays from 9.00am to 5.30pm. This may cause problems at weekends, which are likely to be busy times Olivia and Bill will be fced to wk intensively at weekends, possibly lowering the quality of service. They may also have inconvenient weekday commitments demand starts low and so costs could be saved by employing fewer / part-time staff in the early months Zoe s staffing levels are unchanged throughout the first 6 quarters, and yet sales vary from to per quarter over that period. Good application means the response is clearly focused on the disadvantages that may arise from the way in which Olivia has planned to use the full-time staff in her business. 7

8 2 Total f this question: 40 marks 2 (a) Analyse the reasons why Olivia and Bill decided to produce a cash flow fecast. (10 marks) Level Descript Marks L5 Good application AND Good analysis 10 9 L4 L3 L2 Good application AND Reasonable analysis Good analysis AND Reasonable application Reasonable application AND Reasonable analysis Good application Good analysis Knowledge AND Reasonable application Knowledge AND Reasonable analysis L1 Knowledge / Limited Response Definition: A cash flow fecast shows the inflows and outflows of money (1 mark) either that are expected / predicted in a business over a given period of time (1 mark). Lines of application: Possible reasons f Bill and Olivia completing a cash flow fecast: they expected high start-up costs ( ) and low sales in the 1 st quarter and so they would need to see if their was sufficient the iginal cash flow fecast showed some potential problems which Bill was able to limit by getting credit from suppliers and the franchis the bank manager would need to see a cash flow fecast to assess: whether they needed an overdraft and whether they could repay it over time the suppliers and the franchis would be me likely to cooperate with his requests f credit if they could see the cash flow fecast, which shows positive balances after the 1 st quarter. Good application may be awarded f any of the following: taking a theme (such as the need to avert possible cash flow problems the need to get financial suppt) and showing, in me than one way, how Bill and Olivia s cash flow fecast helps meet one of these needs extending an example of reasonable application with relevant use of numerical infmation, to strengthen the case (such as using the data from the 1 st quarter of the cash flow fecast to show a predicted shtfall of 7000, which confirms the need f an overdraft that exceeds this figure [ 10,000 was offered]) combining two me of the reasonable application arguments to show that these issues collectively demonstrate the need f cash flow fecasting. 8

9 Possible lines of analysis: Bill and Olivia would need to know their cash flow in der to assess whether the business was a feasible enterprise. Positive cash flow would be needed to fund any payments of profits to them as the owners of the business a cash flow fecast can help owners to anticipate problems in advance in der to plan a strategy to overcome those difficulties a cash flow fecast may be needed by other ganisations, such as suppliers banks. Good analysis is shown when the overall answer provides a well-founded response to the question set. Usually this will be through: one of the lines of analysis is developed into a chain of argument with a clear focus on the question, such as showing how the potential problems identified in Bill s first draft enabled them to adjust their plans to avoid the predicted shtfall of cash two me ideas are combined, such as the expected shtfall and the bank s requirement f a fecast, leading to an offer of a small, but sufficient, overdraft by the bank. 9

10 2 (b) Were Olivia and Bill right to choose Location A rather than Location B? Justify your view. (15 marks) Level Descript Marks L5 Good application AND Good analysis 10 9 L4 L3 L2 Good application AND Reasonable analysis Good analysis AND Reasonable application Reasonable application AND Reasonable analysis Good application Good analysis Knowledge AND Reasonable application Knowledge AND Reasonable analysis L1 Knowledge / Limited Response 3 1 Definition: Location is the physical place from which a business conducts its operations (1 mark). Reasons f Location A: predicted sales are 33% higher than f Location B average spend per customer is 50 pence higher at this location Location A is closer to the main centre initially, Location B will be disrupted by redevelopment, making it harder to survive the crucial early months. Reasons f Location B: the annual rent would be lower than Location A this building is me welcoming and Olivia believes that this will lead to higher sales than those predicted Location A will require further expenditure on redecation once redeveloped, the area around Location B is likely to attract me shoppers and so increase sales. Good application may be awarded f any of the following: taking a theme (such as the geographical location) and showing, in me than one way (perhaps sht-term and long-term), how the features of one site are preferable to the features of the other site extending an example of reasonable application with relevant use of numerical infmation, to strengthen the case (such as using the data in Figure 1 to show that the sales revenue f Site A is potentially 1,200 per day 438,000 f 365 days of trading whereas Site B s potential is 825 per day 301,125 f 365 days). A reasoned, numerical comparison of the two sites is sufficient; perhaps including the two rents. The annual sales totals are NOT expected f good application combining TWO me of the reasonable application arguments to show that these issues collectively demonstrate the merits ( demerits) of the different sites

11 Possible lines of analysis: comparisons of data suggest that Location A is 33% me expensive to rent but attracts 33% me customers. Critically, customers at Location A are prepared to pay me per visit in the sht-term Location B is likely to face difficulties but, if the business survives, it may reap considerable benefits from the redevelopment of the shopping area analysis of risk levels both sites had been (failed) coffee shops, but Location A appears to have me certain outcomes than Site B, particularly in the early stages when small businesses are most vulnerable. Reasonable analysis may be shown by an explanation of one of the possible lines of analysis shown in the mark scheme. Good analysis is shown when the overall answer provides a well-founded response to the question set. Usually this will be through: one of the lines of analysis is developed into a chain of argument with a clear focus on the question, such as showing how the higher sales from Location A will increase income levels me significantly than Location B, but will not add significantly to cost levels. two me ideas are combined, such as suppting Location B because it has no further redecation costs and may well have greater potential f growth in the future. Evaluation On the basis of the figures provided, Location A is likely to generate me profit in the sht-term, albeit at a slight risk to cash flow because of the higher rent. Location B is me risky but might have greater potential in the future. Good evaluation makes a clear suppted judgement of whether Olivia and Bill were right ( wrong) to choose Location A rather than Location B (as opposed to, f example, a judgement that Location A is a good location). F Evaluation, you should award marks using the grid below: Note: Evaluation also assesses candidates quality of written communication. When deciding on the level to be awarded, consider the degree to which the candidate ders his/her ideas. Level Descript Marks E3 E2 E1 Judgement with well suppted justification. Answer has a logical structure throughout with effective use of technical terms. Judgement with limited attempt at justification. Evidence of a logical structure and some use of technical terms. Assertion judgement which is unsuppted. Limited evidence of a logical structure and little use of technical terms

12 2 (c) To what extent do you believe that Olivia and Bill are taking too big a risk in choosing to run a Coffee and a Cake franchise? Justify your view. (15 marks) Level Descript Marks L5 Good application AND Good analysis 10 9 L4 L3 L2 Good application AND Reasonable analysis Good analysis AND Reasonable application Reasonable application AND Reasonable analysis Good application Good analysis Knowledge AND Reasonable application Knowledge AND Reasonable analysis L1 Knowledge/Limited response 3 1 Definition: Risk is the degree to which the problems that a business faces (1 mark) can lead to financial loss f the owners (1 mark). Franchise is where the owner of the business, the franchis (1 mark) sells the right to use the product to another, the franchisee (1 mark) Facts causing risk f Bill and Olivia: as a partnership they will both have unlimited liability neither of them have any entrepreneurial experience Bill is putting in a high level of savings and appears to have no job as he has been made redundant Olivia is putting in all of her savings neither of their roles crespond to roles that they have experienced befe the franchis is likely to become stretched by the planned rapid growth (from 10 to 30 stes in one year) and may not be able to provide the materials and suppt that the franchisees require their location was a coffee shop befe, why did it close? Facts limiting risk f Bill and Olivia: if reliable, the cash flow fecast suggests that the business will make money, as the closing balance after 18 months is ( me than the iginal opening balance) and sales appear to be continuing to increase Bill s fecasts are based on secondary market research (although it may be dated / unreliable) Olivia has wked part-time in a Coffee and a Cake franchise and should have gained useful experience of how it operates (but not of the management role of the franchisee) Olivia s drama experience should help her in dealing with people, both staff and customers

13 the franchise was successful in Australia and has expanded quickly, suggesting a good structure. Good application may be awarded f any of the following: taking a theme (such as the previous experience of both Bill and Olivia) and using these experiences to assess whether they are capable of running this type of franchise, providing a brief summary of their experience but combining it with an assessment of how reliable the franchis may be extending an example of reasonable application with relevant use of numerical infmation, to strengthen the case (such as using the data from the case study and cash flow fecast to show how income is received immediately and that cash flow should be 64,000 higher after 18 months, with the overdraft only being needed f the opening quarter) combining two me of the reasonable application arguments to show that these issues collectively demonstrate that risk is high/low. Possible lines of analysis: a financial analysis will show high outgoings followed by future surpluses discussion of the growth of the franchis, suggesting the potential f success but possibly over-ambitious growth. analysis of the different levels of risks taken by Olivia and Bill. Reasonable analysis may be shown by an explanation of one of the possible lines of analysis shown in the mark scheme. Good analysis is shown when the overall answer provides a well-founded response to the question set. Usually this will be through: one of the lines of analysis is developed into a chain of argument with a clear focus on the question, such as showing how the level of experience and motivation of the people involved may be a significant fact in determining the level of risk two me arguments are combined, such as Olivia s apparent familiarity and enjoyment of wking in this environment may be tempered by her HR inexperience, as evidenced by her planning of staffing levels. See next page f Evaluation. 13

14 Evaluation On the whole, the fecasts suggest that profit will be earned quickly and so they can expect a fairly rapid repayment of their (a considerable risk). The final conclusion will depend on the perception of the risk being taken by the franchis s plan f rapid growth. This might enhance brand image but may diminish the quality of service provided to franchisees. Good evaluation makes a clear suppted judgement on whether Olivia and Bill are taking a high risk in choosing to run a Coffee and Cake franchise (as opposed to, f example, assessing the advantages and disadvantages of the franchise). Credit answers that show that Bill s financial risk ( ) is greater than Olivia s ( ), but also credit recognition that these figures are some of Bill s savings but all of Olivia s. In terms of jobs, neither are giving up great opptunities. F Evaluation, you should award marks using the grid below: Note: Evaluation also assesses candidates quality of written communication. When deciding on the level to be awarded, consider the degree to which the candidate ders his/her ideas. Level Descript Marks E3 E2 E1 Judgement with well suppted justification. Answer has a logical structure throughout with effective use of technical terms. Judgement with limited attempt at justification. Evidence of a logical structure and some use of technical terms.
